First Generation Celebration Day at Manor College

November 8th is a national day recognizing First Generation college students. 

Across the nation, November 8 is recognized as First Generation Celebration Day. The day is meant to highlight the achievements and hard work of First Generation college students across the country. 

At Manor College, First-Gen students serve as the majority of our student body and many of our faculty are first-generation college graduates themselves. 

The institution additionally helps First-Gen students with several scholarship opportunities. Most recently, we received $1.27 million in federal funding intended for Refugee, Immigrant and First-Generation students. 

To highlight the day, we wanted to showcase several of our First Generation students and alumni. Read their stories below. Happy First Generation Day!
